Discover Golf : December 2018
It’s a new year! And the game of golf has a fresh look. The R&A—golf’s governing body—has modernised the Rules of Golf. Taking effect on January 1, 2019, the R&A believes the new rules are fairer, less complicated, more welcoming, and more aligned with issues facing the game such as improved pace of play and environmental leadership. The change was initiated to ensure the game of golf thrives for decades to come. We feature the changes to golf’s rules. Be sure to check out the video outlining 20 Must-Know Rules. Xander Schauffele opened the New Year with a bang by putting on a brilliant display of golf to win the Sentry Tournament of Champions in Hawaii. The talented 25-year-old fired an impressive 11-under in the final round. We wrap his sensational win and take a close look at the gear he used to claim his fourth PGA Tour title. On the home front, we feature February’s Festival of Golf. Golf fans will have the chance to celebrate a bonanza of golf with the staging of the ISPS Handa Victorian Open and the ISPS Handa Women’s Australia Open over back-to-back weeks.
